Hibiscus at Mt Fuji Plaque

This painting of Japanese Hibiscus was inspired by photos I took at the base of Mt Fuji. More delicate than the familiar American Hibiscus, it took a lot of research and intuition for me to identify it once I was back home after my trip. A Dragonfly is my signature insect for this piece. The small oval plaque is only 8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″ with a black frame reminiscent of traditional Japanese lacquer. It is ready for hanging with a hook on the back. It is for sale at $80 including shipping and handling in the United States. If you are interested in purchasing this plaque or custom ordering a similar piece with a different motif, please contact me through this site.

Jimmy Buffet Tribute Chairs

This unusual request came from a Jimmy Buffet fan. There are two each of these themed, denim, director’s chairs.  One set of chairs is themed “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and sports a whimsical cheeseburger ‘lounging’ on a beach chaise.  The Parrot is a favorite Buffet symbol and I painted each seat with a  slightly differently angled bird.   A faux ketchup packet is painted on the arm rest.   The other set of chairs is themed “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere”. One of the Five O’clock chairs has a yellow Hibiscus, the other a pink Hibiscus.    On the arm rest is a fool the eye cocktail umbrella.  Various cocktails share the back rest with a Bird of Paradise.    The title of each chair is painted on the rear.
